Antique Persian Heriz Serapi Rug, Country of Origin: Persia, Circa Date: Late 19th Century – The very finest antique Persian Heriz Serapi carpets like this are distinguished by the term Serapi for their especially spontaneous and abstract drawing, and for the exceptional quality of their color. But even among these geometric Serapis, this is an outstanding antique rug. The field consists of sequential stepped zones in navy, ivory, red, and soft blue, each filled with bold, angular vine-scrolls. Still, nothing prepares us for the remarkably original border on this Persian rug with its scalloped rectangular palmettes and ladder-like vines. Inspired by a truly tribal or village rug spirit, it challenges the best Bakshaish carpets produced in the same general area.
